2014 Young Explorers Program (Ages 4 and 5)
New Hope Academy's YOUNG EXPLORERS Preschool Program provides a safe and loving environment while stimulating your child's curiosity. Each session is filled with projects and activities related to a weekly theme. Explorers visit a local splash park and venture out on a field trip or experience an in-house special activity such as a petting zoo or puppet show. Water play, arts and crafts, cooking, story time, singing and lots of outdoor play create a healthy and memorable summer for your child. Explorers must be fully potty trained. The program is open to the community for ages 4 and 5. 3 year-olds must be enrolled for the school year to participate.
